Product description

The VenueMagic SC2+ 3.0 from VenueMagic combines timeline editing, audio and video mixing, animatronics, and sophisticated DMX lighting control into a simple all-in-one software package. The software creates shows with precisely synchronized audio, video, animatronics, and DMX lighting using an intuitive, graphical timeline-based editor.

The SC+ software features a single video playback track, unlimited audio playback tracks, and an unlimited number of timelines running simultaneously. External MIDI, DMX, and joystick devices can control playback, lamp levels, and audio levels with the ability to blend manual adjustments with the playback of pre-built timelines. Advanced features include fully automated show playback with the date and time scheduler, lamp level calibration, scaling and time limits for moving heads, and intelligent fixture re-mapping.

The SC+ 3.0 includes several features geared towards animatronics including real-time recording and playback of DMX, MIDI, and PC joystick controls, looping and auto punch-in record functions, and graphical editing of recorded profiles. Additional features include servo axis rest positions, timeline ease-in (used with external sync), acceleration limiting, and control axes using audio envelopes (Yak function).
